It's Friday!

I can't believe this week is already almost over! It went by so fast! The kids are on Spring break this week, so I have been trying to do stuff with them, while they have been rebelling and wanting to hang out with their friends. Teenagers! We settled on a mix 50% of the time they did stuff with us and the other 50% they got to hang out with their friends. I think that's a good mix!

On Friday's I'm going to just post some of my Instagram pics from the week. What do you think? I heard that Instagram is going to be releasing a Droid app soon! How cool is that? So all you on the droid market can join us on the Instagram fun! WAHOO! I can't wait because I love seeing everyone's pics! As you know I mainly use Instagram for my Outfit of the Day photos, rather than bore you here on the blog everyday. But now you get to see them all on Friday's! If you have an iPhone download the Instagram app - I'm CultNails on there.

I love this lace detail shirt! I bought this at Express and I want to wear it all the time, I have to restrain myself. LOL! During the day I wore it with bright coral shorts and then I swapped the shorts for black jeans at night. 

My favorite bird shirt! LOL! I went to H&M this week and they have different shirt options and even a dress with this print. I had to mess with the kids a bit and tell them I was going to buy all the bird shirts and the dress. They begged me not to! They hate this shirt. They call it my grandma shirt. LOL - aww look at my hair! I miss it so!

I used to be into nail art big time, and then my life got so busy, I just didn't have time for it, then it went out of style for a while there and I forgot all about it. Now it's back, and my skills are weak. I'm trying to work my way back up there. These are rectangle rhinestones that I was trying out. I think we are going to start selling some nail art supplies on our site. Let's see.

I found this skirt on Ebay. It was dirt cheap like $10 or something. It came and it's adorable and I suppose I could have made it fit because of the elastic waist, but alas it looked better on Coco who is also a fellow fashionista. So I gave it to her. She wore it with her leather knee high converse and a pretty bow in her hair. Love the pairing!

Monday we took the kids to Dave & Busters. It was about 80 degrees out, but I'm always cold inside, so I wore a sheer sweater. We stopped at the mall on our way home since we don't have any of my favorite stores near me. Ah Zara's - if only my budget was unlimited - that bag would be way bigger! LOL! Coco gave me this magic colors fun dip - I haven't had fun dip in years, so I decided to try it out. Thanks for the green tongue Coco!

One of the military benefits here is that you can rent a small boat for the day at a pretty reasonable price. Tuesday we rented a boat and took the kids tubing. Unfortunately the water was loaded with jellyfish and so the tubing didn't last long. But we road around on the boat for the day and it was a nice relaxing time. I wore this sheer knit sweater that is part of the Rory Becca for Forever 21 line. It was perfect since out on the water I was a bit chilly without it. I then threw on a swimsuit I bought at Kohl's last year and some board shorts from Target. Easy and comfy! You will never see me at the beach or on a boat without my board shorts! LOL!

Wednesday I wore the shirt I bought from Zara. It says You Really Are The Best Thing I'll Never Have. I thought it said EVER have, not NEVER have. This makes it kind of sad. But for whatever reason I really like this shirt and I'm not one to wear shirts with stuff on the front like this. I threw on my coral orange shorts again with this one. See I do wear things more than once! 

My current mani. 2 coats of Devious Nature with one thin coat of Captivated on the top. I then added a few rhinestones on one nail as an accent. I saw this somewhere. I can't remember if it was on someone's blog, doing a google search or on Instagram. I tried to find it again and of course I couldn't. So unfortunately I don't know who to credit for the idea of glitter nails with rhinestones on one. I put my own spin on it, but I love giving credit for others ideas. If you know who it was, please let me know! 

Yesterday's Outfit of the Day. My new short hair. Yuck! I meant to just trim my hair, next thing you know I lopped off 4 inches! OW! The bright side is I started using Sauve Keratin Infusion shampoo after spending $20 on Shampoo and even more on conditioner for years. And I really like it. I don't know if I will in the long run, but 2 shampoos in and it has made my hair look amazing!

After we went out for some Redberry last night, we stopped at the base gas station. They have these funky yellow orange lights there. It makes everything look like Sepia in person. Not so impressive in a photo since you can make any photo look like this, but every time I'm there at night it amazes me. Everything and everyone looks like this. I take pictures while I'm there every time. I can't help it! LOL! 

That's my week in photos. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
